Abstractfrom the abstract, "The hydrographic features of the Peconic Bay estuary are described from the data of a March 1975 cruise by the Marine Sciences Research Center (MSRC) and from a series of cruises in Flanders Bay from 1971 to 1974 by the New York Ocean Science Laboratory (NYOSL) . The Peconic Bay estuary in March was a vertically homogeneous estuary dominated by a strong and turbulent tidal flow. The discharge rate of fresh water into the bay is small in relation to the tidal exchange so that the mean fraction of fresh water was only six per cent. Tidal mixing and exchange in the open bays appears capable of rapidly diluting and dispersing pollutants introduced with fresh water discharges. Water quality problems presently exist in the vicinity of waste outfalls in tributaries to Flanders Bay and in Sag Harbor . . ."
